Women in Ministry – September 2016


Hi Girlfriends!!

I am sure you are still SPARKLING as you anticipate another great weekend in 2016!

September 23-25, 2016 will be a great weekend for women in ministry to connect, refresh, and ENJOY THE RIDE!. We will have several gals share again this year ways they’ve learned to ENJOY THE RIDE even in difficult circumstances. Please email me at if you would like to share your 10-minute testimony this year.

Psalm 21:6 says “Surely you have granted him eternal blessings and made him glad with the joy of your presence.” Jesus want us to ENJOY MINISTRY as well as life in general – He gave us an abundant life – let’s embrace His provision.

Save the Date!





Women in Ministry – Sparkle! – Sept. 18-20 2015

Our time together is going to be very special as we learn how several of our own PennDel women in ministry have overcome obstacles like health, family and church issues to regain the ability to SPARKLE.

Zechariah 9:16 says, “They will SPARKLE in His land like jewels in a crown!

Although there are times we don’t feel very SPARKLY, God is faithful to surround
us with His presence and restore the SPARKLE to our lives!!!

Who is invited?

  • Female credential holders, wives of credential holders, non-credentialed ministerial staff/wives, or other women in ministry in your community.
  • This is not a weekend for lay church staff.

New workshops:

  • A demonstration of how to apply Jamberry nails. Donna DeSantis will show us the newest craze in nail care.  There is no extra charge; however, if you want to purchase a set, she will be able to accommodate your request.
  • Canvas Painting has become so popular! The cost for this workshop is $10 and you will receive a canvas and the supplies you need to create a “Picasso” of your own!  Jessica Jones is our instructor.  I’m told it is quite easy!!!

Extra incentives:

  • Receive a gift if you are a driver for another gal who is not from your church.
  • $20 discount for first timers! (You or your husband must be a PennDel credential holder.) Enclose the coupon with the registration form.
  • Partial scholarships are available on a first come, first served basis to credential holders or their wives (excludes private rooms). To request a scholarship: or 717-795-5921.

What to bring:

  • Bible and notebook
  • Nail polish if you choose the self-soak foot spa workshop
  • Lawn chair (optional), casual clothes, board games, snacks for the evenings


Download (pdf) and mail in your registration.

Please Note:  Encourage the church board to provide the funds for you to attend!

Any questions??  Call or email Marjie Tourville at 717-795-5921 or  I’m so looking forward to being with my “SPARKLY GIRLFRIENDS.”

Thank you.
